A new business

Tecna has been developing, producing and selling screening test kits for the analysis of chemical contaminants in foods and feed since 1994.

In 2016 the company joined Eurofins Technologies, a novel network of excellent companies set all around the world. The group is actually a fast growing, global provider of diagnostic test kits, consumables and instruments in the fields of bioanalytical testing for the food, feed, environmental, biopharma, and clinical industries. The catalogue portfolio is now including screening solutions for: 

  • Allergens
  • Foodborne Pathogens
  • GMOs
  • Mycotoxins
  • Pesticides
  • Acrylammide
  • Veterinary Drugs Residues
  • Animal Species and food frauds
  • Veterinary Diagnostics
  • Environmental & Water Testing.

This novel era of Tecna as a part of a multi-national crew is lead by Dr. Tatiana Sukhikh, that assumed the CEO role in January 2019. 

Our innovations

We have been developed immunoassays in a number of formats for almost thirty years. Along the way, we have deeply changed the aspect of microplate ELISAs, deleting the calibration curve and introducing the concept of master-curve. Thanks to the stability of our reagents, quantitative results are obtained with no need to spend any determination for controls or calibrators, thanks to the availability of batch-related mean master-curves. This options drammatically cuts the costs of the analysis and enables also small companies to afford the analysis.

Now we are proud to announce the launch of two completely revolutionary platforms.

Chorus is an automatic system of ELISA cartridges handling. It fixes all the issues related to common ELISA robots and brings ELISAs to a novel level of easyness. 

Profilo is a multiplex flexible system for the detection of a number of contaminants at a time in one single sample. 


Tecna is more than a list of kits.

Since the beginning, our mission was to supply customers with comprehensive analytical solutions, including accessories, training, installation services and customer care.

We do believe that food and feed industries need a reliable partner for a proper risk management of chemical contaminants monitoring. We encourage and assist small and medium companies in starting their own laboratory through our experience. We offer our science for the quality of your results. 


New applications for Celer AFLA B1 and B ZERO AFLA B1

New applications for Celer AFLA B1 and B ZERO AFLA B1

Aflatoxin B1 is the most common in food and among the most potent genotoxic and carcinogenic aflatoxins. Aflatoxin M1 is a major metabolite of aflatoxin B1 in humans and animals, which may be present in milk from animals fed with aflatoxin B1 contaminated feed. Having reliable, cost-effective, flexible screening tools that can be applied on many different matrices is the best way to perform the monitoring along the food and feed chains and guarantee their compliancy and safety.

How many ways could a single food sample be contaminated?

How many ways could a single food sample be contaminated?

Ideally, every commodity and finished product would be analysed for every possible contaminant. However, even when using a HACCP-based approach, product testing budgets can quickly inflate to staggering numbers. The solution is a single multiplexed kit that is able to detect a group of relevant targets in a single sample preparation.
